Religious Life Association

The University of Louisville Religious Life Association (RLA) is the organization for the Religious life advisors or Faculty/Staff Advisors who relate to the student religious organizations at The University of Louisville and which are defined by their denomination or sponsoring organization as a campus religious life advisor.  RLA shares with the University of Louisville a commitment to the pursuit of a vibrant campus life and the holistic development of persons: spiritually, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.  RLA respects the rights of individual religious traditions and individual styles of ministry, nourishes the intellectual dimensions of faith as well as the spiritual dimensions of education; and encourages the service of others, both within the University of Louisville and in the larger community.  Further, it encourages spiritual values in a climate of open inquiry.  Believing that religious concern is as broad as human need, RLA seeks to enhance the quality of community and personal life.

RLA exists to provide a consistent liaison to the University in order that open lines of communication may be established.  The desire is to listen to and be heard by the University.  Affiliation in RLA is voluntary and affiliation does not supersede any other affiliation.

Current convener of the Religious Life Association is Sarah Fellows
